Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has played down the significance of Blues owner Roman Abramovich´s decision to leave the directors´ boss immediately after Gabriel Agbonlahor sealed a 2-0 win for Aston Villa.

Goals from debutant Zat Knight and Agbonlahor earned Villa a 2-0 win which denied Chelsea the chance to return to top spot.

"I think the owner leaves the stadium when he wants to leave," said Mourinho. "I went to see England-Germany the other day and I left early because I wanted to beat the traffic."
